 Sailplane Construction Project Session #98

Comet Sailplane Project
The new 7 channel Futaba transmitter for the Sailplane was delivered by UPS today. Tower Hobbies has had it on back order for about a month. Futaba's box is shown below.
I ordered the unit that comes with a transmitter with battery, receiver, switch harness, and a charger as shown below. I did not need any more servos. I put the battery on charge and now have to spend some time reading the instruction manual. However, my good friend James Lollar in Ada, Oklahoma, says the dial feature on the front for selecting functions makes programming so much easier. The transmitter has a ten (10) model memory. However it does have the digital trim switches, which I will have to get use to.....................Tandy
